Unsure what to do with your children during their school’s Spring Break? Send them to us!
Spring Break ZooCamp runs Monday - Friday during the Spring Break weeks most common among East Bay school districts. This year we are offering a three-day workshop on Monday-Wednesday and a two-day workshop on Thursday-Friday. Curriculum is designed so that campers can register for a full five days without repeating activities. Participants must be currently enrolled in Kindergarten - 5th grade. Program hours are 9:00am - 4:00pm, with optional before and after care.
Please look over the information below regarding themes, cost, registration, reservation and cancellation policies and other important information.
March 30-April 1 or April 6-8: Zoofari
Are you ready for an adventure? Join us for a three day expedition around the Oakland Zoo. We’ll tour zoo exhibits, make treats for the animals, play games, sing songs, get to meet some animals up close, and make new friends. This program is a great introduction for kids who have not participated in our full-week summer camp. For our returning campers, we've included some of our most popular activities. And remember, when animals are involved, you'll never have the same experience twice.
April 2-3 or April 9-10: Nature Play
What can you find under a rock in the creek? What signs of wildlife are all around us? The day will fly by as kids tour the zoo, explore Knowland Park, build forts, look for native wildlife, and come nose to nose with nature.
